Just that really. I'm pregnant with dc2 and I love lots of names but wouldn't have the guts to use some of them - silly I know!!!

One of my faves for a girl is Luna/Lunar.

Just for fun- what are yours?

Chase - although tbf I would use it if DH didn't keep vetoing it, mind you excessive pressure has made him agree to it as a middle name smile

expecting DC1 and sad that i don't have the guts to call it Django if a boy or Gertrude if a girl.

And I love Luna OP, Hmmm, can't see DH agreeing to that.
Mind you he likes Arianne (sp) which means master white race (no he's not KK or anything) he likes the name, won't be having that either grin

Ace, Sly (inspired by earlier Dallas thread), Logan & Luna - I'm sure there are loads of others grin.

Ptolemy. Both me and dh like it, but we reckon we would sound like total nobbers announcing it. Shame really as dc3 is due soon and we can't agree on any names!

Quite a few! My taste tends towards the unusual anyway, but I think dp would draw the line at the likes of Persephone, Loveday and Linnet or Atticus, Cassian and Merlin.

Hiro. If I ever had a son, I'd want to call him that. But we are not Japanese and nor do we have any relatives who are so it would be weird.

Hera or Decca for a girl. Boys names I'm alright, I prefer more traditional names, but I'd love to call a girl those names.

almapudden Fri 17-Aug-12 19:32:01

Godfrey. I fucking love that name.

ggirl Fri 17-Aug-12 19:33:22 the name but since eastender about 20yrs ago......

PipIsOutNow Fri 17-Aug-12 19:33:28

I love Atticus tenth!!! Remind me of To Kill a Mockingbird!!! I love Xanthe too.

VickyU Fri 17-Aug-12 20:08:28

Ivor....I would just worry too much about the jokes. But I LOVE it!

Cynner Fri 17-Aug-12 20:14:00

I love Daisy..but got veto from dads..err..3 girls two fathers..neither willing to allow Daisy..or Montana

silverfrog Fri 17-Aug-12 20:17:35

Bluebell - I really like it, but no way would/could use it.

Peregrine - dh campaigned hard for this (just recently had ds), but just couldn't 'see' us using it - woiuld sound far too up ourselves announcing that one!

I really wanted Cosmo for DS but dh said no. DS loves the name too and is cross with us for not using it.

WithACherryOnTop Fri 17-Aug-12 20:33:57

I love Ivor,and have every intention of using it when I'm lucky enough to have a baby.

Littleplasticpeople Fri 17-Aug-12 20:34:11

ooh I love Bluebell too. I might use it as a middle name.
